We have our first ear infection. So sad. We went to the doc yesterday to check out the cough that Micah has had and instead of finding anything bad with that, the doctor found a "fresh" ear infection. So, I guess we caught it early which is good. But, I count ourselves as very lucky because Micah has been very healthy - this was the first time we went to the doctor for anything but a wellness visit or shots.
And, today is February 5th, which means it has been exactly 6 months since we first met our son. Happy Family Day Anniversary to us!
Micah is getting 5 new teeth all together. FIVE! He has one coming in on bottom too now. Here are the top teeth coming in (along with yogurt mouth and a strawberry)...
I love his teeth! They are so cute. I do miss that gummy smile though.
We had a fun weekend - I went to CHI on Saturday morning (solo) for a meeting about Ethiopia and trans-racial adoption. I've been before but it was good to hear from other families and to refresh what I've learned. We also had home-made doro wat. Yum. Kevin went to Mardi Gras all day Saturday, so Micah and I had a date Saturday night before we headed to my step-Grandma's birthday party. We ran errands and then finished our date at Noodles & Co. Micah enjoyed himself as he yelled HI and waved to the diners seated at the next table for, oh, about the ENTIRE time we were eating. They weren't the kind of people who thought it was adorable either. He is very social when we go out to eat - he yells at people if they don't acknowledge his cute-ness. And rightly so! :)
Sunday we went to our friend Baby J's baptism. Micah was terrible during mass - it was right during his nap but he stayed wide awake the whole time. When it was time for the baptism (after mass) he promptly passed out on me. So, he only got to nap for about 30 minutes. It was great seeing Baby J and his mom & dad & sister though. His mom and I have been trying to get together for months - seriously.
And then Sunday night Micah enjoyed his first Superbowl at Chris & Rob's house. Here are some pics...
